1 PAM1014 Introduction to Radiation Physics Basic Atomic Theory Objectives Introduce and Molecules The periodic Table Electronic Energy Levels Atomic excitation & de-excitation Ionisation Molecules Constituents of The basic building blocks of matter Composed of THREE particles Electrons Protons Neutrons Bohr Model Constituent Symbol Charge electron e - -1 proton p +1 neutron n 0 m e = Electron rest mass. e = Electron Charge = 1.6 x C Mass 9.1 x kg 1836 x m e 1839 x m e Nucleus Dense central region Contains neutrons and protons. Contains most of the mass of an atom Atomic Number (Z) The number of protons OR the number of electrons Atomic Mass Number (A) The total number of protons PLUS the total number of neutrons Electrically Neutral Since N o electrons = N o protons 1

2 Elements A substance that cannot be divided or changed into other chemical substances by any ordinary chemical technique. The smallest unit of this kind of chemical substances is an atom. An element is a class of substances that contain the same number of protons in all its atoms. They all have names and abbreviations All atoms of an element have the same number of protons The number of neutrons can vary. with the same number of protons and differing numbers of neutrons are called ISOTOPES. of an element Have the same Atomic Number Have different Atomic Mass Number Chemical Symbol X = Atom X A = Mass Number Z = Atomic Number N = Number of Neutrons For example I78 A Z X N Some are unstable. The nucleus of unstable atoms do not hold together well. Radioactive decay is the process whereby the nucleus of unstable isotopes release fast moving particles and energy. Periodic Table Periodic Table Elements have properties that repeat themselves with variation of N o of electrons (Atomic Number) Elements can be arranged periodically to show this repeated variation. 2

3 Periodic Table The Bohr Model Periods Groups Not completely correct Approximation to the planetary model Mathematically gravitational force similar to Coulomb forces Strength of Coulomb forces much larger than gravitational +ve and ve charges cause attractive and repulsive interactions. The Bohr Model Quantized Orbits Not to scale! Nuclear radius ~100,000 times smaller than atomic radius. More accurate theory of the atom requires Quantum Mechanics The energy of the orbiting electrons as depicted in Bohr model is restricted to certain discrete values. The energy is therefore quantized Only certain orbits with certain radii are possible Orbits in between discrete value not possible Excitation & De-excitation of Excitation & De-excitation of If atoms absorb energy, electrons are excited into higher energy levels release this energy if electrons drop back to lower levels Energy Atomic Excitation Energy Atomic De-excitation 3

4 Excitation & De-excitation of Energy of the emitted or absorbed light (photon) is exactly equal to the energy difference between the two orbits. Ionisation Much of normal matter is electrically neutral N o of electrons = N o of protons In presence of energy sources, atoms and molecules can gain OR lose electrons therefore gain a net electrical charge. Ionisation Definition: Gain or Loss of electrons Loss of an electron Atom becomes positively charged ion e.g. H +, He +,Fe 2+ Gain of an electron Atom becomes negatively charged ion F -, Cl -, S 2- Combination of of various elements may combine to form structures called molecules Example An atom of sodium (Na) can combine with an atom of chlorine (Cl) to form sodium chloride (NaCl) Na + Cl = NaCl Smallest particle of an element is an atom Smallest particle of a compound is a molecule Combination of Combination of Over 100 elements are known Most are rare ~95% of the Earth & it s atmosphere consist of only a dozen elements Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon and Hydrogen compose over 95% of the human body 80% of the human body is water 4
